All our shelter dogs will have been seen by our Veterinarian or the shelter Veterinarian, and if there are any medical issues that require medication we will let you know in advance.
Since these are shelter dogs without any history, we can’t confirm if the dog will be housebroken. Being a foster is helping to train your foster dog to become housebroken by taking them on walks and using potty pads if needed. If you don’t want to work with potty training, maybe being a foster isn’t right for you.
We do our best to find out from the shelter prior to rescuing them if they get along with other dogs. They can only do their best by doing a temp test, but we can’t guarantee that they will immediately hit it off with your dog so we always say “give it at least 3-5 days for your foster to acclimate and let them learn to adjust to your dog. ****Regarding cats … We have no idea if they are cat friendly. So if you have a cat, we suggest you foster an older dog or a puppy who will most likely never bother a cat.
Being away all day will not be an issue, unless it’s a dog that has to take meds or needs to be walked. We can cover that day if needed with another foster. We will find another foster while you’re away on vacation or have guests at you home. We just ask that you give us at least a week’s notice.
No, Precious Pals Pet Rescue covers all supplies and expenses for the care of the dog while in foster. We are always grateful for fosters who want to donate items they get for their foster dog while in their home, but we will always refund any funds put out with submitted receipts.
We hope we have answered most of your questions regarding being a foster parent. If you have any further questions, please email us and we will gladly answer all your questions.
